Fight for control of the Lotus Galaxy in Starship Samurai, a game of area control and massive mech combat.
"The heavens erupt in the skies above the streets of Byakko City. Points of light flash briefly as the warp drives of carrier ships blink into existence. The Nova Clan’s forces are caught off-guard as a swarm of Void fighters launch to overtake the bustling capital city. The airspace siege cannons of the Void carrier hammer away at Nova Clan’s defenses, and a shadow falls over the city. Masumune has arrived. The gargantuan samurai mech cuts through the enemy forces with ease, obliterating the few remaining Nova Clan ships as they attempt to warp away to a neighboring system. Byakko City belongs to the Void Clan… for now."
Take control of your clan and lead your fleet of ships to glory with cunning tactics and political manipulation. Battle for control of key locations in the Lotus Galaxy to increase your clan’s honor and sway lesser clans to your cause.
Each round, players will use an innovative action selection system to use one of four available actions: Gain Wealth, Move Units, Draw Cards or Move a Clan Token. The value of each action is determined by the token used (1-4). This system allows players to adjust their strategy at a moment’s notice to reflect the challenges they’ll face from rival clans. Move your ships and Samurai to block a key location, draw cards to change the course of battle, move a Clan Token to secure your claim to the throne or generate wealth to give you even more options.
Each player will control two Samurai with unique abilities that can vary their strategy and change the outcome of any game. These advanced Mechs are the heart of your fleet’s power, capable of destroying enemy ships with ease and shifting battles in your favor. Use them wisely!
Maintain Honor, no matter the cost in Starship Samurai. Lead your clan to victory and secure your claim to the throne of the Galactic Emperor.
